As well as dual-fuel engines, Wärtsilä is to supply a control, electrical and automation system for Harvey Gulf’s latest MPSVs

Wärtsilä reports that it has been contracted to supply a complete integrated solutions package for the first of a series of multi-purpose PSVs for US operator Harvey Gulf Marine.

The ships are already being supplied with Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines, for operation principally on LNG fuel. The additional scope of supply includes a turnkey installation of the Wärtsilä 3C integrated bridge, navigation, and communication control system, and the complete electrical and automation system. Wärtsilä has been contracted to fully integrate the supplied systems and to further interface them with other onboard systems, and to submit the documentation required for classification society approvals. The contract includes an option for a similar package for the next two MPSVs in the series.

Additionally, the contract includes a five year service agreement covering six LNG fuelled offshore supply vessels and up to three multipurpose support vessels, and includes all Harvey Gulf vessels that have recently been fitted with Wärtsilä equipment.
